The U.S. Coast Guard changed the buoyage in Swinomish Channel as of October 31st. The “change point,” noting the return to sea (Red Right Returning), was moved to the center of La Conner. It previously was about 2 miles north of La Conner. Old charts do not reflect this change. Buoy R22 has been changed to G35 , G23 to R34, R26 to G31, and G25 to R32.
